On Friday morning students made studies of the five Ideal Solids addressing the categories of light. Notice how the smooth rendering and strong contrasting values in Katy's drawing above creates a strong sense of volume but also suggests a metal-like surface on the forms.
In the afternoon, students made compositions with the solids employing the Distal Ques. Click the tab above if you missed the lecture notes. Angelica's drawing illustrates a fairly deep sense of space moving straight back from sphere to sphere and crossing with an implied diagonal of cylinders. The broad, wavy strokes add a turbulent quality like a sand storm. Although she could balance the darks of the cone and sphere in the foreground more on the right side of the composition, the tonal range and gradations are very complete and well drawn.
